The Oracle of Pharmaceuticals

Michael Checka was born and raised in Southbridge, Ma. Upon graduating from Massachusetts College
of Pharmacy in June 1980 he was recruited by Peoples Drug in Washington, DC. Following the
completion of the Peoples Drug Management Training Program he began his career as a front store
manager and pharmacy manager. This dual role gave him valuable insight into all aspects of the retail
chain drug industry. He also served as the shop steward for local 400 AFL-CIO for four years while with
CVS in Washington. After 25 years in the Federal City, Michael assumed a new position as the Chief
IV(intravenous) pharmacist in the Sterile Compounding Room or IV Room at Virginia’s third largest
hospital in Fredericksburg, VA. After ten years of supervising the preparations of all chemotherapy and
intravenous preparations he left to become Vice President of two independent drugstores in
Woodbridge, Va. Michael also served as a unit officer in the Fairfax Medical Reserve Corps for many
years. Michael now calls Stuart, FL home.
